The fire season began early this year in Los Angeles. North and slightly West of the city, hundreds of acres burned for several days. Unseasonably hot, dry weather contributed to the situation.
In feng shui, accidental and wild fires are the same energy as conflict (arguments, lawsuits). The sector for conflict for this Chinese Year of the Pig 2007 is the Northwest.
At the end of the first week of May, the feng shui energy for amplification ~ itself symbolized by the element fire ~ moved into the sector for conflict and immediately, the fire season began.
Spiritually, wild fires are the result of community anger.
The City of Los Angeles has recently been home to several conflicts involving the local Police Department ~ the most significant of which was a May Day demonstration for the rights of illegal aliens. The long-standing and deep-seated emotional issues between police and illegal aliens in Los Angeles combusted into a situation where innocent bystanders, children, and even news media were battered.
One week later, fire.
There is no belief that this fire is a result of arson. There are, however, many factors (physical, emotional, spiritual) involved in any event and discompassionate anger at the right time is like a spark to dry brush.
May is a month for honoring the Earth (it comes on the heels of Earth Day!) from May Day (the pagan celebration of the first day of Summer and Peace Day) to Mother's Day (honoring our mothers, grandmothers, and Mother Earth) to Memorial Day (remembering those who have returned to the Earth)... it is a time spent appreciating our gardens and enjoying the weather ~ connecting with our Earth-selves!
If our emotions and our activities are harming the Earth (such as through global warming), they are also harming ourselves ~ both directly and indirectly. Take time now to save yourself: Heal yourself ~ heal the planet; change yourself ~ change the world!
Release long-standing and deep-seated anger and resentment and replace it with compassion to restore harmony to your life and surroundings.
Incomplete expression of any emotion results in physical-life and spiritual-life inertia. The three basic negative emotions (fear/anxiety, anger/resentment, grief/disappointment) initiate this inertia.
blessthebody.com E-motion Potion stimulates the emotional body to release suppressed experiences liberating the psyche by completion of their expression. Depending upon your karma, not all experiences must be worked out overtly.
This is an important remedy for anyone undergoing psychological counseling, 12-step therapy, or any regression work. It is also important for people evolving from child abuse, both physical and emotional. But do not think this is a remedy for extreme cases — it can act with subtlety when subtlety is required.
It is common that people experience an "un-winding" — an emotional process which begins with depression, then moves into hostility, then nervousness — as a way of rooting out the origin of the problem. Do not be alarmed; it is a natural process to your clearer self. Combine with blessthebody.com First Aid if the emotional process becomes too overwhelming.
This remedy opens your life to the greatest qualities of grace and peace and joy in the world. It makes of your life a deep meditation that spreads itself to the edges of the universe. Use this remedy when you are finally serious about turning your life over to God.
The seat of anger in the physical body lies in the liver and gallbladder. Congestion of the gallbladder contributes to sinus problems. The typical American diet of fat and anger results in a nation of people with gallbladders on the brink of failure and chronic sinus problems.
The winds from the Northwest (the sector for conflict for this Chinese year) have been unusually strong in Los Angeles, irritating the sinuses and, of course, fanning the recent fire.
If wind carrying the energy of conflict into a city with long-standing issues of anger results in a riot and a week later, a fire... and if that same wind exacerbates the sinus problems of those with already overloaded anger/gallbladders... then how can anyone accuse Los Angelenos of being self-absorbed when we are so obviously inter-connected?

To combat conflict in your life and in yourself, for this month of May, place a bowl of clean water in the Northwest sector of your home (as long as it is not a bedroom). Make sure to change the water regularly. Beginning the first week of June, replace the water with a red candle.
There will be no Sunday Evening Meditation Class on Memorial Day Weekend. Take time to meditate on your own.
